Groundhog Gets a Say

Groundhog Gets a Say

by Pamela Curtis Swallow Illustrated by Denise Brunkus

There's so much more to being a groundhog than just putting on a show once a year, and Groundhog has decided it's time to tell the world the hog truth.

With the help of a few of his fans, Groundhog is ready to tell everything about himself, from how loud he can whistle (loud), to how fast he can run (not fast), to how many things he uses his teeth for (a lot). Groundhog may be full of himself, but chances are good that, by the end of this book, you'll agree he's pretty wonderful!

From the illustrator of the Junie B. Jones books and the author of the Melvil & Dewey books comes a funny, fact-filled look at what happens when one very proud groundhog speaks out.
